Unfortunately, not all medical procedures produce the desired results and sometimes cause more medical problems. However, when they do it is not automatically malpractice by the doctor. Under FL law, in order to have a claim for malpractice against a doctor, you have to prove that the conduct of the doctor in performing the procedure was below the reasonable standard of care for a doctor of his skill level (for the purpose of this response it is the standard of negligence).
The first step here is that you need to get to another doctor who is a specialist in this field for an examination. The reason for this is that under FL law, before you can sue for malpractice you must send the doctor a notice of intent to file a malpractice suit and it must include a verified written medical expert opinion corroborating that there are reasonable grounds to believe that each named defendant was negligent. See: Fla. Stat. Ann. § 766.203. The doctor then has a chance to respond and also must include a verified medical expert opinion to refute the claims. Until this is done, a malpractice suit cannot be filed.
A medical malpractice attorney cannot really do anything without you having a medical expert opinion that something the first doctor did was negligent. It is not merely enough that the doctor did the procedure and it did not produce the desired result under the FL laws, you have to show it did not produce the desired result because the doctor was negligent.
